Pioneering Parishes: Starting Out

Start date
20 Sep 2022, 7:30 p.m.
End date
1 Nov 2022, 9:30 p.m.

A series of four webinars over two months aimed at helping parishes start to move their energy outwards and become more pioneering.

In the webinars the course facilitators offer a series of postures, practices and tools that help the parish church to:

  • Gradually fall in love with those outside the church who are unconnected
  • Recognise the culture gap between the people who worship in the church and those who live in the locality
  • Better understand pioneering, and the stages a pioneer team goes through to create church ‘where people are at’
  • Create an environment in which pioneering groups and individuals can flourish
  • Work out how to use available capacity in a way that most closely serves the church’s values, mission and vision
  • Develop a mini-ecosystem of traditional and new churches

Tuesday 20 September, 4 & 18 October, & 1 November, 7:30pm to 9:30pm each session.

Led by Rev Tina Hodgett and Rev Greg Bakker.
